Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Anna Paquin is NYLONs’ September 2009 cover girl and was the guest of honour at this event.

She arrived alongside actor Stephen Moyer wearing a Herve Leroux LBD with black peep-toes.

Her sexy pencil dress had a sheer plunging neckline and sheer long sleeves.

I would’ve preferred this dress to be sleeveless like the dress Megan Fox wore on Letterman.

AnnaLynne McCord also opted for a sexy LBD, but hers was a strapless Camilla and Marc Lotus Frock tulle dress.

I love the playfulness of this dress with the tulle skirt, which suits AnnaLynne as she always seems to be having fun on the red carpet.

The feminine frills were countered with a large studded belt.

I love the pops of colour which added a touch of tangerine and lemon fresh sunshine to her look.

Those of you who purchased the Zara Fall 2009 LBD with pointed shoulders look away now, as Aubrey O’Day might totally ruin this look for you.

The ex-Danity Kane singer wore the form fitting dress, with bright pink peep-toe heels, and shocking pink lipstick.

Apart from Stella McCartney, Jenna Dewan is the only person who has made the dreaded thigh-high boot not look tacky.

Maybe it’s the maroon colour or her ditsy print floral dress, but I really like how she worked these boots.

When I was looking at pictures of Katie Cassidy today, another blonde bombshell came to mind – Charlize Theron.

I’m not saying they look alike, but her hairstyle is very similar to how Theron styles her hair.

My ‘Flavour of the Week’ looked fabulous wearing a one-shouldered animal print Nicole Miller dress with a fan detail on the bodice.

I love the asymmetrical detail on the skirt and the unexpected raspberry Rock & Republic’s “Nika” pumps which brighten up the look.

Animal prints are not easy to pull off, but I think Katie does so very well.

Whilst a lot of people opted for black at this party, Madeline Zima wore a bright orange dress with pink tulle underskirt.

Her stand out dress was paired with a teal clutch and nude peep-toes.

Alison Brie wore an electric blue French Connection Fast Bonny asymmetrical dress which was very popular with UK soaps stars.

Grey accessories completed the look.

It’s Britney b***h.  No actually it’s a blonder Kristin Cavallari.

“The Hills” stars showed of her lighten ‘do as she walked the red carpet wearing a silver metallic cold-shoulder Elise Øverland Fall 2009 dress, paired with some black ankle boots and a black clutch.

I miss cute strappy sandals. Why do ankle boots have to be paired with everything these days?

Best Dressed Award
Alexis Bledel maybe the surprise choice for Best Dressed, but she was totally captivating wearing a stunning blue ‘Opening Ceremony’ dress with a lace yoke and hem which made her blue eyes sparkle.

Her look was paired with Loeffler Randall Genevieve asymmetrical zip sandals.

Risk That Paid Off Award
It seems that Leighton Meester is doing her best to totally separate herself from her “Gossip Girl” character, which is why we are getting edgier looks from her.

The actress opted for a chic black and white striped Louis Vuitton mini dress with a layered skirt which could have gone horrible wrong, but she works it well.

She paired her dress with red Brian Atwood heels which are to die for.

Best White Award
It’s not often we see the sexy side of Jordana Brewster.

I think it’s the power of her white Herve Leger Resort 2010 bandage dress which brought it out in her.

As always, I would have preferred a different colour heel to her black Jimmy Choo Billie Lizard print sandals.

Best Rock Chick Award
Please don’t be surprised that Kristen Stewart is on this list. This may not be to everyone’s liking, but at least Kristen isn’t trying to be someone she’s not.

With terrible mullet forced upon her for her upcoming movie “The Runaways”, I think she makes the best of a bad hair day wearing an edgy Rock & Republic Fall 2009 plunging v-neck dress with a spiked skirt and Jerome C. Rousseau booties.

She tones down the uber sexy dress with a white tank top.

Rihanna will be kicking herself that she didn’t see this first.

Best Brand Ambassador Award
Nikki Reed was flying the flag for Miu Miu wearing a modified dress from their Fall 2009 collection, with a studded Miu Miu clutch and Miu Miu suede cut-out sandals.

I love the modified dress on her as it’s more youthful than the runway dress.

I can picture the runway version being worn by Rachel Weisz or Jennifer Connelly.

Best Re-Run Award
I’m instantly drawn to Audrina Patridge’s Courtney Crawford turquoise patent leather platform pumps, but her purple Zuhair Murad Spring 2009 strapless ruched dress is equally dazzling.

You may remember that Hayden Panettiere wore this same dress recently during “Comic Con”.

Best Embellishments Awards
Emma Roberts’ Monique Lhuillier Resort 2009 white mini dress has an exquisite embellished neckline, which could be easily mistaken for statement necklace.

As always she paired her pretty dress with Brian Atwood black booties.

Best Legs Award
Fergie puts her best foot forward wearing a cute Marc Jacobs Resort 2010 mini dress covered with multi-coloured sequins.

I’m glad she didn’t opt for a boring LDB, but a sexy LBD with some pizazz.

I would have preferred the runway heels though, hers feel really heavy.

Simple Yet Stunning Award
Jennifer Morrison can do flashy, but she’s at her best when she keeps things simple.

The actress looks divine wearing a mint green Missoni Resort 2010 dress with a silver box clutch.

Wish Come True Award
A few years ago I was longing for Vanessa Hudgens to wear a major label and here she is wearing a purple Christian Dior Fall 2009 mini dress.

I love the dress on her, but I just wish she’d left the skirt alone. It would’ve been better cut short to allow it to flow like on the runway, than hemmed up.

Her dress was complemented with purple Brian Atwood pumps and a sliver clutch.

Pretty In Pink Award
Although I feel like I have seen this look many times before on Hayden Panettiere, there’s no denying how cute she looks in her pink Zac Posen dress with her favourite nude Christian Louboutin heels.

Best Floral Award
Ashley Greene was picture perfect wearing a Dolce & Gabbana ensemble including a light blue bustier top and floral print skirt.

I adore her ruby heels and purple clutch which complete her look.

Best Shoes Award
Ashley Tisdale wore a gorgeous wearing a cute Used/Unused bustier dress with Christian Louboutin Very Prive studded peep-toe pumps.

I told you these heels would be a hit with celebrities.

Most Sophisticated Award
At first I was miffed at Cameron Diaz for not showing off her best asset on the red carpet – her legs – but now I have come to realise that Cameron appears to have moved on from that look to a more sophisticated style.

Cameron looked so elegant and sophisticated wearing a grey figure-hugging Alexander McQueen asymmetrical zip dress.

Her stunning Pierre Hardy blue peep-toes are simply divine.

Most Cute Award
Every time I see Brenda Song on the red carpet the first thing I always say is “Ahhhh, she’s so cute”.

The cutie attempted to toughen up her look wearing a black and white Alexander Wang jersey dress with black clutch and black strappy sandals.

Most Interesting Award
Had Keke Palmer not worn the gold sequined bolero I probably wouldn’t have paid much attention to her look, but it’s so eye-catching.

The bolero adds an interesting dimension to her look.

Camilla Skovgaard ankle boots complete the look.

Best High-Street Look Award
Kristen Bell mixed a Topshop black jumpsuit with gold Jimmy Choo Flynn sandals.

At the “Star Trek” LA premiere Kristin Cavallari made her first red carpet appearance since it was announced that she was taking over from Lauren Conrad on “The Hills”.

The star wore a multi-coloured curve-contouring Herve Leger Spring 2009 bandage dress, plus a Christian Louboutin Catenita cork sandals with a fuchsia pink heel and platform.

UK singer Jameilia wore to the same dress to the “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” London premiere. KG Azalea pink heels adorned with a cute bow and ruffled detail on the heel completed her look.

Both women look outstanding in this dress, but prefer Kristin’s cork heels. Jamelia’s stand out too much and take my attention away from her dress.

You can purchase this dress from Net-A-Porter US site for $1,590, or the Net-A-Porter International site for £1,400/€1,720.53.

Kristin Cavallari has stepped things up a notch in the fashion department during the past couple months, and my favourite look apart from her Zac Posen pink dress was the look she sported whilst headed to the Alexa Chung’s MTV show.

That day she wore a striped jersey dress, cuffed black blazer, and nude sandals. But what stood out the most was her sought-after Alexander Wang Studded Coco Duffel bag which we’ve seen her carry many times.

The buzz surrounding this bag was started by Mary-Kate Olsen who was spotted carrying it back in January, before it had even been presented during the Fall 2009 collection in February.

This bag sold out immediately this week on the Net-A-Porter US site, but is still available on the Net-A-Porter International site for £795/€975.62.

After her Donna Karan gown, I thought that Megan Fox couldn’t out do herself, then she arrived on the red carpet last night looking better then ever.

Her white jersey Kaufman Franco gown is incredibly sophisticated and sexy, something Megan has struggled to find in equal balance since her Donna Karan gown.

For me this is her best look yet.

For once I don’t feel like she is trying to hard. She’s not even over pouting. If you have seen the movie you know what I’m talking about.

Definitely a Best Dressed Of The Week candidate.

Isabel Lucas opted for a cute chiffon lemon cocktail vintage Chanel Haute Couture dress covered in silver embellishments.

Her silver accessories complemented her dress including Lanvin pointy pumps and a Fendi clutch, and her 3 tone hair was styled with loose waves.

Kristin Cavallari was my second favourite at this event wearing a fuschia pink Zac Posen asymmetrical dress which I had on my favourites last week.

What I love about this dress, with its one capped sleeve and one strapped sleeve, is the structure along with the vivid colour.

I’m glad she pulled her hair back so we could see the asymmetrical neckline.

Her look was paired with nude Dolce Vita Cajun gladiator sandals and a black clutch.

Taylor Momsen seems to have grown out of her Debbie Harry phase, as she not wearing the extreme heavy make-up and leathers.

Instead she opted for a slightly softer look wearing an ivory bustier Dolce & Gabbana dress with black lace-up sandals, finishing her look with smoky eyes and a Crucifix necklace.

She’s young and still experimenting so I’m sure we will be introduced to many more looks from Taylor.

We’re more used to seeing Aubrey O’Day half naked or spilling out of her clothes so this is a great look for her.

She also picked a bright summery colour wearing a cobalt blue Temperley London Eclipse Glade dress, with silver Louboutin sandals with complemented the gem-embellished detail on her shoulder.

For once she’s impressed me but I don’t expect this kind of look from her again.

Ciara on the other hand didn’t impress me.

What a lazy boring attempt.

Tie-dye jeans are becoming a bit stale and the visible bra is my number 2 pet-peeve after tights.

My number 3 pet-peeve is two tone or more hair. Ciara was just not out to impress last night.

Just as I suspected Kim Kardashian had just pinned up her luscious locks for the MuchMusic Awards and hadn’t cut it thankfully.

The reality star arrived on the red carpet wearing a sleeveless tuxedo dress which had a deep plunge.

Stella McCartney heels completed the look and her make-up was much better.

I think this is going to be the hardest ever poll, mostly because I’m not at all keen on the dress.

For the “Hangover” Dublin premiere last week, Heather Graham wore this black strapless Herve Leger dress, with sheer cut-out panels down oneside.

The actress completed her look with a black strappy sandals, and a matching clutch.

Kristin Cavallari obviously hadn’t been keep up with current events, because the very next day she wore the same dress to the “The Wizard of Oz” Exhibition Opening Night Gala in LA.

Kristin also kept her accessories to a minimum opting for a stack of gold bangles and nude platform slingbacks.

After agonizing over this for a long while, I will pick Kristin, mostly because of the black nude theme she has going on, and secondly because she looks like she actually put a comb through her hair.
